The Police in Nateete, in the outskirts of Kampala, arrested several prostitutes and their clients who were treated to nude shows being staged in notorious bars in the area.
The 23 prostitutes that were arrested are accused of staging nude shows.
During the operation, drunk prostitutes and men 'high' on yet-to-be-identified substances fought policemen and hurled all sorts of insults as they struggled to free themselves.

Visibly stunned men who were caught engaging in amorous activity with prostitutes looked like rabbits in headlights as they pleaded for forgiveness.
The bolder ones fought cops and assured them it was their right to do what they wished with prostitutes.

The 'women of the night' kept taunting policemen, asking if they owed any of them whatever they were 'selling'.
The highlight of the operation was when a prostitute who was caught having sex screamed and pleaded for forgiveness, claiming she was married.
Some of the suspects who were caught smoking marijuana
The operation was carried out in the areas of Kigagga, Kitaka, Kitooro and Nateete Central B zones. Some of the suspects were found gambling and smoking Marijuana.
Most of these were arrested from Mabiito and Kandahar bars. A police source swore: "It was like Sodom and Gomorrah!"
Nateete police boss, Moses Muzima, said the operation was carried out following numerous complaints from residents over cases of rampant theft and buglary in the area.
He said they had information that suspected criminals coordinated their activities with prostitutes and that is why they were arrested.
